How do I get started?

EA FITNESS realizes that the hardest part of any process is getting started. We make getting started easy and convenient. We conduct a fitness evaluation that determines the individual’s current fitness level in the following (6) areas: cognitive awareness, total body strength, overall range of motion, physical impairments/limitations, exercise knowledge, and personal preferences. The fitness evaluation is designed to establish a baseline current fitness level and provides necessary information to develop an individual’s specific functional fitness program.

What do Functional Training sessions include?

All sessions are based on the EA FITNESS customized exercises for the individual client. On the spot exercise modification to accommodate the individual’s daily ability levels, as this varies from day to day with some individuals. Appropriate rest periods and continuous evaluation of cognitive awareness and physical capabilities. Sessions will always include adequate stretching to reduce soreness and improve flexibility. Last and most important is constant positive reinforcement of all efforts made by the client.

What are the Training service options?

Packages are based off one, two, or three sessions per week in either half hour or hour intervals. Pricing is based on a sliding scale which reduces the cost per session when more are purchased. The initial fitness evaluation usually determines if the individual will be better served by undergoing half hour or hour sessions.

How do I get started?

EA FITNESS realizes that the hardest part of any process is getting started. We make getting started easy and convenient. We conduct a fitness evaluation that determines the individual’s current fitness level in the following (6) areas: body composition (estimates the percentage of body weight that is fat weight and lean weight), total body strength, overall flexibility, physical impairments/limitations, exercise knowledge and personal preferences. The fitness evaluation is designed to establish a baseline of your current fitness level and provides necessary information to develop an individual specific general fitness program. Additionally, these evaluations are conducted quarterly to measure progress and aid in revamping training programs.

What do Personal Training sessions include?

All sessions are based on customized exercises for the individual client. All sessions come complete with clear directions including, but not limited to, repetitions, sets and demonstrations. The sessions also include appropriate rest periods and suitable progressions that provide continual challenges to the client’s physical capabilities. Sessions will always conclude with adequate stretching to reduce soreness and improve flexibility. Last, but not least, is constant positive reinforcement of all efforts made by the client. Clients also have the option to take advantage of dietary consultations and meal plans.

Program Development

Following a discussion with the individual(s) to determine their goals, fitness knowledge, available equipment, and any physical limitations an exercise program is crafted. This program includes step by step instructions inclusive of number of sets, repetitions/time, weights, rest periods, and progressions. EA FITNESS is available to demonstrate all of the exercises and can be contacted with any questions at a later date. These programs are typically good for 6-8 weeks then a new program needs to be created to continue to challenge an individual. This is also important to avoid muscle memory where your body simply goes through the motions. Program development can also include diet plans or recommendations to complement the exercise plan.
